Breakfast with Santa

On Saturday, Dec. 14, the Windham Lions Club will hold Breakfast with Santa from 8-10 a.m. at the Windham Veterans Hall behind Hannaford. The Lions Club is very thankful to the Windham veterans for the use of the center. The breakfast is free (pancakes, sausage, orange juice, milk, hot chocolate and coffee) but donations are accepted. Children will be able to talk with Santa and have their pictures taken. Bring your camera.

Thank you

Recent donations from Project Graduation 2013 and Sebago Lakes Region Chamber of Commerce to Windham Neighbors Helping Neighbors are very much appreciated. As the days get colder, more requests for help with fuel are received. WNHN provides one-time fuel deliveries in critical situations. The only source of funds to provide this help is from donations and fundraisers. For information on how you can help, visit their website at
